  Stefan Scepovic signs...
Posted by: struth - 03-09-2014, 11:17 - Forum: Celtic - Replies (2)

New signing Stefan Scepovic has insisted Celtic were always "his first choice" and denied saying he did not want to join the Scottish champions. This is after knocking them back at the last moment Rolleyes

The Serbian striker's move to Celtic appeared to break down amid reports he was signing for Getafe, but 24 hours later he sealed a £2.3m switch to Scotland on transfer deadline day.
"My first option was always Celtic," Scepovic said as he was unveiled by the club on Tuesday.
"I never said I didn't want to come."
The 24-year-old hitman, who netted 22 goals for Sporting Gijon in Spain's second tier last term, revealed he had spoken to Getafe but was not close to joining the La Liga outfit.
He said there was some confusion over the comments he made about his move and he is now keen to look ahead after penning a four-year deal with Ronny Deila's side.

Well, he has to say that, but he will HAVE to hit the ground running, or the fans will turn on him Wink

  John Guidetti loan....
Posted by: struth - 03-09-2014, 11:13 - Forum: Celtic - Replies (16)

SFA and SPFL appeal to Fifa over Celtic's move for John Guidetti. The SFA and SPFL are in the process of contacting football's world governing body Fifa to ask for dispensation to register John Guidetti at Celtic.
The SPFL is satisfied that all the paperwork was in order but as it was filed after midnight on deadline day, a case is now being made for the deal to be allowed to proceed.
Celtic attempted to sign the Manchester City forward on loan on Monday night.
The 22-year-old is in the final year of his deal at the Etihad Stadium.
A joint statement from the SFA and SPFL read: "The SPFL had a 23:00 transfer deadline in place for registrations while the Scottish FA had a midnight deadline.
"At 22:56, the SPFL received a request from Celtic FC to extend the SPFL deadline for registration of John Guidetti to fall in line with the Scottish FA midnight deadline. The SPFL agreed to this request.

Sounds like a bit of jiggery pokery in favour of Celtic to me, but such is life thee days. Tongue

  Scotland at Euro 2016
Posted by: struth - 03-09-2014, 01:39 - Forum: International Matches - Replies (31)

Manager Gordon Strachan admits Scotland are in a battle for second spot as they prepare to kick off their campaign to reach the Euro 2016 finals.
Strachan's side face World Cup winners Germany in Dortmund on Sunday in their opening match of qualifying Group D.
Republic of Ireland, Poland, Georgia and Gibraltar are also in the group.
"Germany will qualify. Poland, Scotland, Georgia and Ireland for the other two spots, that's a mini league," Strachan told BBC Scotland.

Scotland have not qualified for a major tourney since 1998, and although group D is a toughy, I think , Germany aside, who will win it with their eyes shut, Scotland have a chance. Poland are the biggest threat, but if we continue to improve, Euro 2016 in France could be seeing the Tartan Army after an 18 year gap. Smile

  General Suggestions to Improve the Forum
Posted by: St Charles Owl - 03-09-2014, 01:35 - Forum: Suggestion Box - Replies (100)

Thought I would set up a thread to allow users to add suggestions for the site.

Here are some suggestions from Thurnscoe to start with!!

(03-09-2014, 01:02)Thurnscoe_OWL Wrote: You can really tell that it's a new site. I'd maybe give it a while to get somewhere near user friendly before we move over here. It's a bit like when we turned the analogue off over here. I'm just thinking about poor old pei and imre getting all confused and flustered in the switch over.

Just a few changes I can suggest; the smilies being put next to the quick reply box (in fact have the quick reply the same as the old site), a bit of colour about the place (maybe some pictures and what not ie select a few players from each league to head their league pages), a quick jump button so you can select where in the thread you skip to (owlstalk have a "start from last read" button which comes in handy as threads grow in size, possibly difficult on a site of this stature) and also sort it out so I can have my Atdhe signature pic because it won't upload properly

and we need our : smartass: and : sleeping: smilies in order to run the BML AND Thurnscoe_OWL's league for people who care about this shit

  Kluivert for the Staggies?
Posted by: struth - 03-09-2014, 01:31 - Forum: Ross County - Replies (5)

Ross County chairman Roy MacGregor says Patrick Kluivert remains in contention to become the Staggies' new manager.
The Dutchman emerged as a shock candidate to replace the sacked Derek Adams, but weekend reports suggested he had ruled himself out of the running.
"I talked to his agent yesterday," MacGregor told BBC Scotland.
"I think he's interested in a number of jobs but [his agent] alleged he's still interested in the Ross County job, so we'll take it from there."
Kluivert, who earned 79 caps for the Netherlands, was assistant manager to Louis van Gaal at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, helping guide Holland to a third-place finish.
The 38-year-old has not managed a side on his own, however.
Strange things happen, but I doubt this is a goer. Big Grin

  Team names

I notice that a lot of the team names are not complete. Just a small thing but I would prefer to see Sheffield Wednesday in full on forum names rather than Sheff Wed.

Continuing the catch all thread theme. Please post anything related to the season so far on here, transfers, rumors, club statements etc etc. Of course there is nothing to stop anyone from setting up a new thread for a single subject if you feel it is warranted!!

Posted by: struth - 02-09-2014, 23:31 - Forum: Manchester United - Replies (6)

With all the transfer changes finished it may be a good idea to outline them.

Daley Blind Ajax £14.0m
Ander Herrera Athletic Bilbao £29.0m
Angel di Maria Real Madrid £59.7m
Marcos Rojo Sporting Lisbon £16.0m
Luke Shaw Southampton £27.0m

Jack Barmby Leicester City Free
Bebe Benfica £2.4m
Alexander Buttner Dynamo Moscow Undisclosed
Sam Byrne Everton Free
Charni Ekangamene Zulte-Waregem Undisclosed
Patrice Evra Juventus £1.2m
Rio Ferdinand Queens Park Rangers Free
Ryan Giggs Unassigned Players Retired
Angelo Henriquez Dinamo Zagreb Loan
Javier Hernandez Real Madrid Loan
Federico Macheda Cardiff City Free
Nani Sporting Lisbon Loan
Nemanja Vidic Inter Milan Free
Danny Welbeck Arsenal £16.0m
Wilfried Zaha Crystal Palace Loan

So, about £140 mil spent, ut the defence has not received much work, and could be the main reason I feel that Utd will struggle again. LVG certainly has his work cut out. Rolleyes

Radamel Falcao's year long loan will cost Utd a fee of £6m in the deal from Monaco.

Falcao's move, meanwhile, includes an option for United to buy him for £43.5m at the end of the loan spell.

The player will earn approximately £265,000-a-week, while it is not thought Monaco are paying part of his wages.

The striker told his new club's website: "Manchester United is the biggest club in the world and is clearly determined to get back to the top.

"I am looking forward to working with Louis van Gaal and contributing to the team's success at this very exciting period in the club's history."

These were very popular and may help with visibility as a lot of google visits were due to it. May be worth setting up a section...Just a thought.

  E Fife game postponed.
Posted by: struth - 02-09-2014, 23:06 - Forum: Rangers - Replies (63)

Rangers Manager Ally McCoist has involked SPFL rules to get the Petrofac Training Cup quarter-final against E Fife to be postponed due to international call-ups.

Lewis Macleod, Bilel Mohsni and Dean Shiels are likely to be on International duty.

Not sure it is a good idea tbh as Gers have hit a bit of form and a longish layoff may well put us back to the drivel we were playing eirlier in season.
